Who Needs Some SharePoint Basics?

Tag, you’re it; you are now a SharePoint Site Owner.  Or, Congratulations, you just inherited a SharePoint site.  There are many different ways of becoming a new Site Owner, but the honor doesn’t always come with orientation, a guide book, or instructions.   So what are you really the proud owner of, what does the responsibility include, and what can you do with your new powers?

I created the video below to help provide some guidance and give you a jump start with some SharePoint basics.  Knowing the basics is also important so you can get the most from CorasWorks.  In less than an hour we’re only able to scratch the surface, but I’ll get you to the starting line on the road to success with SharePoint and CorasWorks.

As the training guy at CorasWorks you can imagine I’m often asked “What’s in the training?”  I’m always happy to have a detailed conversation with customers to help align the training topics with what you’re trying to accomplish.  However I created a short video introduction for the CorasWorks Essentials training to help answer the question.

Tips for viewing the video:  Hovering your mouse over the bottom of the player provides controls to pause, increase/decrease volume, or view in full screen mode.
